Happy MLK Day!

With MLK Day here, hopefully people are thinking about Martin Luther King Jr. and the civil rights movement. Thankfully, we've come a long way from the America of the past in regards to civil rights. Unfortunately, I think we'll never be completely past our own prejudices and ignorant beliefs. There are just so many people out there who refuse to give their biased beliefs much reflection and thought. But, the fight must go on. It's easy to get caught up in political and everyday rhetoric that can mar your thoughts and ideas about people. Hopefully you'll take a day to at least think about how to change any of those beliefs in yourself and maybe even give a good word to those around you.
